A couple tweaks and this could be great. Like drinking perfume. The smell was great but it tastes bad if it gets in your mouth. Close to being a good Andes mint but overpowering in a strange way.

On tap at Dexter's for Mad Craft Beer Week.

Though I'm not loving it, the execution is astonishing. It tastes like a mint chocolate confection of the highest order. (I don't like mint chocolate candies.) My mistake : I didn't see the "mint" in the description.

Great taste of mint, reminds me of drinking andes mints with alcohol but with toned down sweetness which is favorable to me.
